This is the 5th book in our 32 volume 'Irish Families' series. It focuses only on families found in County Limerick and includes families of all religions and backgrounds, including old Irish families and settler families. It follows the master volume to the set, 'The Book of Irish Families, great & small" which contains information on families from all of Ireland.
An outline of the history of the county as it relates to Irish families, and to Irish research, is included, along with an exhaustive history of thousands of Limerick families.
